In essence, says the company, the cables offer custom options but with the convenience of standard part numbers.

The cables provide high performance at data rates up to 1 Gbps at 850 nm. They’re intended for high data aggregation in backbone, riser, and high-speed parallel interconnections. They also offer compatibility with a broad range of laser-based and legacy protocols. In addition, the cables' CPC coatings offer superior microbend and environmental performance.

A data sheet on the Black Box Web site details all cable options and standard part numbers.
